AC Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic appears all set to make his big return to the international stage later in the month, according to a report.
Ibrahimovic has not played for Sweden since 2016 when he announced that he would retire from international football after the European Championships that year, and although there has been speculation about a possible return to playing for his country, nothing has ever materialised.
He put out a cryptic tweet on social media last year of him in a Sweden shirt with the caption ‘Long time no see’ – deemed by most to be a provocation towards those in charge of the national team but causing some to plead for his return.
According to the newspaper FotbollDirekt (via MilanNews), this possibility seems close to becoming reality as the Milan striker will apparently be part of Janne Andersson’s squad for the three upcoming matches in March.
Sweden will play on March 25 against Georgia and on March 28 against Kosovo in World Cup qualifiers, and will also have a friendly against Estonia on March 31.
